The official countdown to the 2015 NFL Draft sits at just six days, and it won’t be long before we’re discussing all the major picks. In the meantime, let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there in the league.
Colts OT Gosder Cherilus is reportedly scheduled to be ready for team activities in June, according to sources close to the team.
Cherilus is coming off arthroscopic knee surgery in January.

The Ravens inked a couple of players to tender offers yesterday. Safety Will Hill and DT Casey Walker signed their RFA tender sheets.
Will’s was $1.542 million and Walker’s was $510,000.
Good news for Giants fans. WR Victor Cruz is very confident that he’ll be able to play in the team’s Week 1 opener. He says there are “zero doubts” about his availability for that one.
Cruz is currently coming back from knee surgery, though he’s reportedly not progressed to cutting just yet.
Remember when there were all sorts of rumors flying around about a potential trade between the Chargers and Titans? Well, according to a source close to the situation, those talks never occurred.
The supposed deal would have involved Chargers QB Philip Rivers and the Titans’ No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft. Had it transpired, the trade certainly would have been a blockbuster.
The Bears agreed to terms with TE Bear Pascoe yesterday. He’ll be in town on a one-year deal.
Pascoe most recently played for the Falcons, collecting two balls for three yards and a TD in 2014.
